Mary-Kate Olsen In The Row & Chanel: Ashley Olsen In The Row – 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards

The Row Fall 2011 Bag Red Carpet Debut Award
The Row was nominated for the 2011 “Swarovski Award for Womenswear” at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

Mary-Kate Olsen wore a black skirt by The Row with a Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 shimmering gold jacket – which typically looks a few sizes too big for her.

Gold strappy Louis Vuitton sandals and Cartier jewels completed her look.

Ashley Olsen’s look was simpler, as she wore a custom The Row blue dress with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Cartier jewels which included a scalloped motif necklace.

You’ll notice that the twins were showcasing bags which are from The Row Fall 2011 collection.

This is the first time we’ve seen the bags on the red carpet. I love how they appeared to make the bags the main focus.

You can view the whole bag collection on The Row Facebook page.

The price point of their bags according to Harper’s Bazaar is $5,450.

    i’m glad their bags cost more than CHANEL. maybe that’s why she wore the jacket.

      ditto…it’s too much.

    that jacket would fit me and I’m size 12!!! (blushing)
    I agree with the comments that not everyone has to wear minis and strapless, etc. but to wear those hideously ovesized clothes year after year? At least they do not look like bag ladies this time…hey, wait a minute….

  4. SarahV June 7, 2011 at 22:04 #

    Wooosh, I’d rather buy a Chanel or… 4 Mulberrys for that price.

  5. Lee Ann June 7, 2011 at 20:14 #

    For a nano second M-K looked like Catherine Deneuve-the later years.

  6. Lucinda June 7, 2011 at 17:35 #

    Ashley looks like Cariie Bradshaw: The Early Years…

  7. Lucinda June 7, 2011 at 17:33 #

    At the very first glance i thought it was Joan Rivers!!

  8. Sara June 7, 2011 at 15:58 #

    I think Ashley looks quite beautiful. I love the color on her and her accessories are great.

  9. maria June 7, 2011 at 15:40 #

    i don’t like either of the looks. MK looks like an old lady with her illfitting jacket and the mullet skirt, and although Ashley’s dress has a nice colour, the design itself is underwhelming. I do like their accessories though.

    They both compliment each other well.
    I just know those are going to be blockbuster bags, which is good because I quite like them

    I wanna be buried in that Chanel jacket. I want to know the price… or do I?
    I bet it’s about 30k. Sigh. I need to start saving up for my funeral if I really want THAT jacket.

  12. AW June 7, 2011 at 14:47 #

    This has to be a joke or maybe im just tacky but I don’t get these girls. Since when is horrible tailoring considered high fashion????

    And those bags. Seriously? $5,450? Legitimate designers that have devoted years to their craft and businesses should be insulted that these children would think that those bags deserve that price tag.

    • Emi June 7, 2011 at 21:02 #

      Amen. I totally agree with you. I’m so tired of people who think that a name is enough to create a brand. I don’t even understand why they’re considered designers.

  13. Lucía June 7, 2011 at 14:37 #

    I only like the bag…Well that Chanel jacket is amazing, but it looks so much better on the runaway

  14. Courteney June 7, 2011 at 14:15 #

    I prefer Ashley’s look. MK’s jacket is lovely however it’s bothersome that it doesn’t fit her. I’m not wild about the bags. They sort of remind of Victoria Beckham’s bag collection.

    • Courteney June 7, 2011 at 14:17 #

      But on sidenote: I am digging Ashley’s jewelry. Love!

    • ahot June 7, 2011 at 16:35 #

      right? I thought that too. Their bag collection really look like Posh’s.

  15. Alina June 7, 2011 at 14:03 #

    I like both looks , esp. Ashley’s.

    • goldfish June 7, 2011 at 14:59 #

      i like them too… i don’t understand why people always are so harsh on them- well i just don’t understand it, because i personally love their looks.
      just because you are young, doesn’t mean that you have to wear mini skirts and bodycon dresses.

  16. bibi June 7, 2011 at 14:00 #

    Is this a joke? rofl!
    couldn’t she” take in” the beautiful jacket!
    ooohhh maybe it’s just borrowed clothes!?????
    Didn’t she try them on before!?

  17. Laura June 7, 2011 at 13:56 #

    It is very clearly all about the bags. That being said, I think Ashley has the best overall look. I love that color for her.

  18. Marvel June 7, 2011 at 13:55 #

    They look like 2 grandmothers on their way to Bingo

      • bibi June 7, 2011 at 15:41 #

        Loooooooooooool too funny

    • DivaMom June 7, 2011 at 14:40 #

      I was just gonna say why do they insist on looking so old and matronly. They are young women…they should dress like it! Ugh. All that money and not a clue as to how to dress or buy clothes that flatter.

      • Courteney June 7, 2011 at 19:12 #


    • Rebecca Z June 7, 2011 at 15:24 #

      Too funny! I actually think Ashley looks really nice for once, but the grandma image certainly came into my head with Mary Kate–a rich grandma, but a grandma nonetheless. I agree with goldfish that they don’t have to wear mini skirts and bandage dresses just because they are young–I really like Ashley’s look for that reason, but still….let in a little sunshine!

    • Luis June 7, 2011 at 15:35 #

      You are so right.

    • justme June 7, 2011 at 18:44 #

      LOL seriously. I can live with Ashley’s look though her shoes are ugly but Mary-Kate? My grandma would love her outfit.

      Also, they have got to be kidding with the prices of those bags.

    • Emi June 7, 2011 at 20:56 #

      LOL, you’re so right!! The price of the bags is ridiculous, people who will buy those ugly bags instead of spending for a Chanel, a Vuitton or Hermes etc should visit a psychiatrist, a good one.
